University of California Policy on Sexual Harassment and Procedures for Responding to Reports of Sexual

academic personnel, staff employees, students, and non-student or non-employee participants in University
programs.

employees and educating the University community regarding sexual harassment, and a statement that the
policy shall be implemented in a manner that recognizes principles of free speech and academic freedom.

provisions of the policy. To ensure that the University locations are in compliance with the policy as soon

Associate Vice President, Human Resources and Benefits for approval.

including provisions for early resolution and formal investigation. Managers and supervisors play a key
